The Maximum Fighting Championship has added another force-to-be-reckoned-with contender to its rapidly

deepening pool of lightweight talent.

 

A winner of seven straight bouts, Curtis The Demon Demarce has agreed to a new multi-fight contract, and

the 22-year-old is eager to begin his climb up the ladder in the MFCs 155-pound ranks.

 

Im really excited because this is exactly what I wanted to happen, said Demarce of signing a deal with the

MFC. I had a long layoff that I needed because I had an injury but Ive been ready to come back for a while

and Im very happy that I was able to come to an agreement to be in the MFC.

 

Im healed up and Im ready to go. The MFC is an elite organization and Im excited to see where Im going

to go. Whoever Im thrown in against, thats fine with me Im ready. The MFC has a lot of good guys now

at 155, but Im not worried about who Im thrown in against. Im excited to fight anybody.

 

Demarce made a great first impression on the MFC in his organizational debut last September. In the first

televised fight at MFC 26, the Brandon , Manitoba , product scored a tapout victory via triangle choke late in

the second round over previously undefeated Tyson Steele. It was a victory that put Demarce on the map

and earned him the runner-up spot on the list of the MFCs 2010 Submissions of the Year.

 

The five-foot-eight lightweight has notched six career wins by submission skills he has honed while training

with The Arena MMA in San Diego alongside notables such as K.J. Noons, Dominick Cruz, and Jeremy

Stephens. Demarce said he expects to head back to California to prepare for his next fight, and hes eagerly

eyeing two specific potential rivals who are going to face each other at MFC 28: Supremacy on Friday, Feb.

25.

 

I know a lot of people have been talking about a fight between me and Kajan (Johnson). If thats a fight the

fans want to see, Id be excited to do it, said Demarce. Ive known him a long time. I think it would be

exciting. We both try to finish fights and were both on a tear right now.

 

Id also like to fight Richie Whitson. That would be a really good fight.
